Did you know…?

Tuesday, 07 February 2012

Sabrina by Sandro Boy is a typical example of how the horses often get their names in Germany. Photo by Jenny Abrahamsson.Did you know that in Germany the horses often get names which starts with the same first letter as tyst of there father? Sabrina by Sandro Boy, Corlanda by Cordalme and so on.

In Holland on the other hand, they normally choose the first letter in the name from the year that the horse is born. So if you look at the newly selected three year old stallions at the KWPN, almost every name starts with an E. The horses that are four this year start their names with a D, the five years old with a C and so on. At the KWPN stallion selection next year we can look forward to a lot of stallions with names starting with the letter F.
